Re: FRANCE 2.1 - Version 10.4 [20 February 2013] pg 21/21

Postby iancanton on Sun Mar 17, 2013 12:57 pm

on the mini-map, the new 3-letter abbreviations for the départements look much neater than the previous ones. u chose to have PC instead of POI; this is fine, as long as u think that players will not confuse PC with PIC. ILE for île-de-france is missing.

for the three pyrenées départements, u have room to write the word pyrenées in full.

on the inset map for île-de-france, the font is too small. if possible, make it the same size as on the main map. u have enough room to write paris (which is currently missing), yvelines, essonne and val-d'oise in full. how will u show suburbs 2, 3 and 4 in the xml? something like 2 hauts-de-seine?

the colour of the rivers must match the colour of the sea, otherwise it looks as if there's a line between the rivers and the sea.

although i'm no graphics expert, i like the exaggerated mountains except for the vosges which, from a distance, look the same size and in a straight line.

[Moved]

Two fortnightly review periods have passed without any updates or meaningful engagement from the mapmaker(s),therefore the map is considered stalled. If the mapmaker wants to continue with the map, then one of the Foundry Moderators will be able to help put the thread back into the Foundry system, after an update has been made. ;)

Hello,

Lancelot is alive =D>

Here are some updates before continuing, I need your comments.

1. I redid the Atlantic seaboard. The border is more rounded. I think doing the same thing with the Mediterranean.

2. The minimap is updated with the 3-letter abbreviations for all regions.
Image

3. I remade the focus on Paris. It is expanded: removing of neighboring regions + writing the names of departments.
Image

4. Name of the department "Pyrénées" write in full.
Image

5. I wonder whether it is useful to keep the black border regions. It seems he does nothing.

6. Mishalex is working on the mountains. From my side I'm working on riveres and sea.

Thank you for your patience and good help.

I redrew the Mediterranean coast. It is more rounded.

I also redrew the arrival of the river to the sea. Now, this clearer for the river.

Lance, do you mind if we discuss in the thread instead of PM?

I really tried to work with your illustrator file, but I cant. I'm not sure how you built the map, but there's so many layers with masks, I can't really isolate borders or regions. Even when I try to ungroup, it's just boxes and shapes everywhere. You said there was a newer file out there, is it cleaner than the one you sent me?

Probably too late to bring this up, but I'm definitely going to miss the current France map if this is going to be the replacement. Apart from the fact it brings completely different gameplay, it doesn't really offer much graphic-wise compared to the current map, if anything at all.

Also, am I the only person that dislikes maps full of many open bonuses?

As far as I know, it's not intended to replace the current France map.

As far as graphics - I'm trying help with the mountains. This map was created in Illustrator and I primarily work in photoshop. I roughly did some photoshop work last night - here's what I have. Triangle mountains just to get an idea of how the shadows work. You see It's going to be difficult to port just the mountains into that illustrator file.

I'm still thinking about this though.

Looks really cool rjbeals.

One thing: I like the glow each bonus area has in the Lance image. Each bonus is visually distinct in more ways than one from the adjacent ones as a result of the way the glow terminates. Eh, I think it looks nice. I hope you know what I mean here.

Rjeals Sorry, I did not see that you answered in the forum.

I see you've started to draw the mountains. I'll clean my file and organize layers in a better way. So you will have less difficulty to insert the mountains. I think we should always keep working in Illustrator and keep the effects of design.

Thank you for your help. I send you the new file.
